Making an Informed Decision

To make a decision that’s right for you, it’s important to understand your gas usage and natural gas prices. Gas prices change quite often, so it’s especially important to look at your history for an entire year – not just one month. Use the following tables to help you make an informed decision.

Table 1 shows monthly high and low gas supply charges over the past 5 heating seasons. Past prices are not necessarily an indication of future gas prices. This information is subject to revision and Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission rulings.
